The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) presented Barrett Stambler, vice president of wind marketing and sales for Portland, Ore.-based Iberdrola Renewables, with the AWEA Commercial Achievement Award in honor of his creative contributions to innovative structures for renewable power sales and for the sheer volume of wind power he has sold in his nearly 30-year career.

Stambler's repeat customers include investor-owned utilities such as Xcel Energy and Pacific Gas & Electric Co. Municipal, cooperative and public utility customers include the Southern California Public Power Authority, Great River Energy, Eugene Water and Electric Board, Modesto Irrigation District and the federal Bonneville Power Administration.

Stambler and his team have negotiated power sales agreements for well over 2,000 MW of wind power and renewable energy credits in 13 states since 1986.

"Barrett has been an innovator in our industry," says AWEA executive director Randall Swisher. "His creativity and persistence have made him one of the best marketers in the business as he's helped to transform the way the North American wind power market functions. We are pleased to present him this award."
